I this Stillman A. Guptill the same person as Alfred guptill?

There is another Stillman A. Guptill, buried in Fairhaven Baptist Cemetary, on Deer isle Nb, Canada. The dates on 

the Gravestone are 1828-1860. My anscestor Alfred Guptill, born on Deer isle and married Charlotte Wentworth, was also born 1828 and died 1860. I am wondering if these may be the same person.

I am having such a hard time trying tp find Alfred Guptill's parents.

Alfred Guptill moved to Eastport, Maine after getting married in 1851, Has 4 children: Franklin W. 1860, Almira C. 1854, Mary Jane 1852 and William A. 1858. What info I have found was from Ancestry.com and Family search.org, as well as some internet sites. Can you help me?

Deer Isle is a town in Maine as far as I know  Are you sure there is a Deer Isle in New Brunswick?

It's Deer Island, NB, Canada. Sorry I didn't list it correctly. The island is next to Grand Manan.

Try this.  Im trying to find my Grand father in the same area James A. Tilley 1842.  If I come across anything I think may be of help ill e-mail you.  You might also try the local library they have things on genealogy that are not in circulation, also university's and the Morman Research sites.  They all have the same info so you don't need to hit them all.  Also you could call the historical society of the town you think he is from.  I just did for myself and it turns that one side of the family is well documented in Deet Isle, Maine

I finally found Grand Manan Isle. and Deer Isle in New Brunswick Ca.  It is very difficult to find people after 1850 or so and in most cases the records just don't exist.

That's the brick wall I hit also.

Well I think I may have mad progress on my Great Grand Father James Tilley, but I haven't run across your ancester yet.  That area that the loyalists went to up in Canada was called Muggersville.  As I have researched Canda I have found that it is trial and error as to what information I enter and where I enter it.  But he has gone up right on the border of maine between Canda and Maine and that makes it a hard search.  I will keep on looking as I go along.

Hi I went into the Library today.  There is a book there about Gran Manan and Passamaquoddy and that is were you need to look I think.  Eastport seem to be the palce that they all moved onto so my best guess would be to be looking. I wrote down the mane and authur of the book but i have missplaced it somewhere with my notes.  I get it to you as soon as I find it...It was something like the History of Pssamaquoddy and East Port.  Do a search for it and there are a lot of books on goole that are out of print and free.

Would that be Martha Ford Barto?
